raccoon removal and repair

I contacted over 10 companies both on Homestars and the internet and got quotes from $1,683 to $10,000 and many outageous tall tales from "impossible" to "have to redo the whole roof". Some companies tried to collect an "inspection fee" without doing any work. Finally, David from AAA Gates came over, inspected the whole roof thoroughly and repaired the problem in under two hours. I'm very happy with the job, but I can't help being very angry with all those dishonest workmen.

Hello, I am so sorry that you had so much trouble looking into wildlife control companies. Unfortunately this industry is not licensed, meaning just about anyone could start a wildlife company. Saying that, I am so glad you came across my company and that we were able to solve your wildlife intrusion. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about your experience.

Squirrels in chimney

Gates Wildlife responded to our call immediately. They were able to humanely remove all the squirrels from our chimney and prevent them from coming back. They were also able to clean out a large squirrel nest from our chimney behind our boiler, which had three dead squirrels. They provided excellent follow-up to make sure our problem was resolved. David, who was sent to our house, was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job. He was very courteous and followed covid protocol. I highly recommend this company.

Skunk under shed

We had skunks under my shed and my neighbors. David did a terrific job getting them out. They came back three times, and David patiently and diligently reinforced the initial work. The skunks are now gone, and their repeated efforts to get back in have been unsuccessful. Thanks, Gates Animal Control!

Incredible service. With a smile.

We had a noise in the roof above our bedroom after moving into our new house. It was driving us crazy. We had another company come round and at great expense not even fix the problem.

We'd heard great things about AAA and called on Friday. Joel turned up this morning and was AMAZING. Can't recommend him highly enough. We'll be straight on the phone to AAA for any future pest based needs. Amazing service. Thank you so much!

Squirels in Woodbridge

We noticed noises that seemed to be emminating from the drain pipes at the second floor eaves of the house. We investigated and found our suspicions to be correct. We phoned Gates Wildlife Control. I had used them at my office before I retired and knew they were good (and humane). The same held true for this instance. They showed up at the agreed time and did the job the way they promised. We are very happy with Gates and would use them again if the need arises.

Squirrels!

I just happened to notice a squirrel on the roof darting into a hole under our top floor dormer. Gates Wildlife was quick on the job, assessed the entire roof, found three potential entry points, and dealt with them all. Today we are sleeping soundly knowing the job has been professionally dealt with, and Kieran was a fantastic service agent.

Racoon Eviction and Prevention

When a chimney cap was damaged, we asked AAA Wildlife to check the flu for animals before installing a new animal cap. They found and evicted two racoons and installed animal protection on all chimney flus and vents.
Very fast and they really knew what they were doing.

Company Response

Hello, thank you for bringing a very important point to light. It is critical for homeowners to know that before closing an animal entry point it must be determined if animals are present before doing so. We often get called out to remove animals that have been trapped inside the attic after the entry hole has been closed. During the spring mother animals are often locked away from their dependent babies. It is for these reasons that it is important to hire Gates Wildlife to ensure all the animals are out before closing the hole. This month Gates Wildlife is participating in Movember and we will be donating $5.00 in appreciation of your review.

Gates Wildlife found what others could not!!

One early fall morning I heard loud banging noises coming from under the floor in the mud room attached to the back of our house.

this is not a new issue... two previous years I had hired a different company and thought the problem was solved as identified as "mice that were getting in somehow".

This time, I wanted to try a new company and found AAA Gates on Homestars.

I emailed them and actually had same day visit from David... who by the way was great.

Told David the issue and he inspected the outside perimeter and had to agree there was no entry point that he could see.

David then said he wanted to check out our neighbour's backyard - who is attached (semi detached).

David came back and found the issue... RACCOONS! they were digging from under my neighbour's deck to under my mud room...

David placed a one-way door and over the next few days came back to monitor.

The raccoons had exited and were not able to come back... it's been a few weeks now and all clear!

Wanted to thank Gates' team for their fast response to my issue and the incredible skill to find this issue.

So happy to have found this company!!!

Really recommend Gates and their service, follow up, and overall integrity!
